Fable: From Farm to Table Launches Choice-Based CSA: This up-front purchase helps the farm invest in growing fresh, local, organic produce for the community.
Fable: From Farm to Table, in Ossining, has launched an all-new Farm Card program, an innovative type of CSA (community supported agriculture) that provides more flexibility and choice for its members.
Fable’s CSA sells Farm Cards for $250 or more, which members can spend like cash throughout the summer and fall at the farm’s market. This up-front purchase helps the farm invest in growing fresh, local, organic produce for the community. Members can pick out their own produce—as much or as little as they’d like—over the course of the growing season, and Fable will subtract their weekly selections from their Farm Card balance.
“Members can pick whatever they want every week,” says the farm’s owner, Tom Deacon. “Don’t like turnips? Skip ’em. Craving curly kale? Grab as many bunches as you want. Need to skip a week or two? That’s not a problem either. Having a dinner party? You can pick up everything you need at our newly remodeled market, which is located inside a beautiful, rustic barn built in the 1700s.”
Fable’s CSA is no longer limited to just produce grown on the farm. “Now our members can enjoy some local and artisanal products too, like jarred tomatoes, homemade bread, cheese, herb-infused olive oil and more,” he says.
Fable: From Farm to Table is located off the Taconic State Parkway on Route 134, at 1311 Kitchawan Rd., Ossining, NY. Its new market is open weekends from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. For more info, visit FableFoods.com.
